TANEVA, S., 2017. The role of strategic human resource management in late career. IN: Monteiro, I. and Iguti, A.M. (eds.) Work, Health and Sustainability, Campinas, Brazil: Unicamp, pp. 83-90.
The urgent need to manage an increasingly ageing workforce has prompted rigorous multi-disciplinary research across the world. A plethora of studies focuses on the best ways in which both organisations and employees can support employees’ well-being and high performance in late career. From this perspective, the key role of strategic Human Resource Management is a topic of strong interest. Recent findings suggest that, in contrast to traditional views, older workers (those aged 55 years and over) are interested and capable of development. Hence, management practices that allow and encourage development opportunities in late career may be highly beneficial for both employers and employees.
